Atlas of Surface Palpation: Anatomy of the Neck, Trunk, Upper and Lower Limbs
This book contains 800 precise black and white photographs (many of which have never appeared in written works before) which are spread out over 12 chapters. They clearly illustrate the surface investigation of the different anatomical structures (bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and neurovascular system) and each is accompanied by a technical description. A reference manual for both students and practitioners, this book is also a methodological guide to a more practical and professional application of anatomy. Written to be both practical and concrete, it is of service to a diagnostic procedure in which palpation is one of the vital methods of clinical examination.
